COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Huckleberry Wheat is bear food in a bottle! Most other fruit beers have such a tart snap that you can't taste the beer. The Huckle-Weizen is BEER with just enough huckleberry to make you yearn for the wilderness!

Braudog (5583) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle: Poured with one of the biggest heads Iíve ever seen ... at first pour, 100% of the glass was tightly-packed foam. After about 4 minutes, it finally settled into a airy topcover of a bright hazy body. The aroma gave off a light sense of wildberry. Smooth on the palate, this was primarily sweet, almost candy-tart. This is almost like a raspberry lemonade with 5% alcohol. Pretty good if you want a fruity one.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2007 Re-rate - (11/16/07) picked up a single 12-oz bottle from the brewery in Billings, Montana. Pours a semi-clear golden blond brew with a creamy white head that dissolves slowly to a film top and white ring. Some spotty lacing but quite thick in the glass. Aroma of light white bread with a soothing huckleberry scent. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated, with a mild tart huckleberry, wheat and a touch flowery hops. Finish is smooth, light with a distinct huckleberry aftertaste. I have had several huckleberry fruit beers in Montana over the past year. This is one of the best huckleberry flavored beverages.

First rating (10/14/07)- infected bottle.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2002
Cloudy pale yellow with perhaps a touch of pink -look kind of like a fuzzy peach. Quickly diminishing head. Very fruity aroma - apple, apricot. huckleberry? Thankoodness the flavor isnít quite as sticky sweet as the aroma. Berry sweetness with some wheat malt sweetness in the background. Slight acidic finish helps clear some of the sweetness away. Not bad for a fruit beer.

badgerben (4386) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2005
Golden color with a thin white head. Very flowery aroma with a strong herbal quality. Slight fruits which I presume to be huckleberries, but Iíve never had one so Iím not really sure. The taste has a bit of wheat on it, but is really about the same as the aroma. Not outstanding, but pretty tasty.

JK (4353) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2007 Not bad. Cloudy orange and lightly carbonated. I donít know what a huckleberry tastes like but the flavor of this beer is very similar to Pyramid apricot. Mostly sweet, but some sour in the finish. There does not seem to be any artificial flavors so that is good.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Appearance: Pours a pale golden body with a small, fizzy-looking white head. Smell: Boom. There you go. Huckleberries. Taste: This beer offers enough of the fruity, juicy huckleberry quality we all seek without getting excessive about it. Beyond that, thereís just a soft hint of wheat and lemon. Finishes crisp and tart. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Finally, a beer that allows me to get my huckleberry "fix".

nuplastikk (4295) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2009
12oz bottle. Murky orange-brown color. Sweet berry aroma, potentially artificial but quite pleasant nonetheless. Juicy, tangy citrus hits you right off the bat, and dominates the beer throughout. Tart and refreshing, I sort of like this beer. The huckleberry taste is not unlike tart raspberry, with more of a lemony kick. Light honey touch in the finish. I could drink this stuff all day.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of huckleberries, malt and grain. Taste is sour and tart with huckleberry Ė a bit puckering. Could use some sweet malt to help balance it out. Somewhat astringent and not very good.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Big, foamy head; cloudy, dried-apricot hue. Crisp and spritzy up front; smoother and creamier toward the finish. Light malts with flavors of dough and crackers. Light notes of yeast -- wholesome and earthy. Nice level of huckleberry, just enough to show up in the background. Very, very mild bitterness. A refreshing beer with nice things going on, but not overly exciting.

sonnycheeba (3357) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear copper with thin, fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is mixed berries, cereal and cookie malts, floral hops, and light herbs and toast. Flavor is balanced sweet malts and berry esters with supporting floral hops and toast; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
